Geography Bee
The Bahamas is an archipelago consisting of 700 islands and nearly 2,500 small islets or cays, the most westerly of which, Biminis, is located only 50 miles off the coast of Florida. The Bahamas Islands stretch across roughly 100,000 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean between the southeastern tip of Florida and the northern tip of Haiti.

Only about 30 of the islands are inhabited however. The two most populous of these are New Providence Island, where the nation's capital, Nassau, is situated, and Grand Bahamas Island, where the resort center of Freeport is located. The other populated islands and cays are called "Family Islands". Some of these include Abaco, Andros, Acklins, Crooked, Berry Island, Cat Island, Eleuthera, Exuma, Inaguas, Mayaguana, and San Salvador.

Sunny Forecast
With sunshine almost year round and a tropical climate moderated by the Gulf Stream, the Bahamas Islands enjoy very even temperatures. The winter months are the driest and sunniest, with lower humidity, slightly lower temperatures, and cool ocean breezes borne by North American cold fronts.

The summer months are particularly humid; May through October corresponds with the nation’s rainy season. Although heavy, showers tend to be short, and because the Bahamas Islands are low-lying, annual rainfall is lower than on other islands in the Caribbean. The only downside to Bahamian weather is the hurricane season, which lasts from June to November. Also see average bahamas temperatures.

Blessed with a favorable geography and near perfect weather, it's no wonder why many people who vacation in the Bahamas, end up buying a vacation home there.
